Short description:
The Asociación para la Prevención del Delito (APREDE) was recently founded in 2004. The objective of the NGO is to provide both formal and informal education and training to high-risk children and adolescents in healthy lifestyles as well as training in manual vocational skills. Through the provision of this training, the target group can be reinserted into both society and the job market thereby being able to contribute positively to the community — and not be involved in drugs and crime. Previous activities of APREDE include the implementation of training awareness-raising programmes for civil servants as well as manual vocational skills training for high-risk youth.
